Vidant hosting annual Jell-O toss Tuesday

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The James and Connie Maynard Children's Hospital is hosting it's annual Jell-O toss Tuesday afternoon.

Staff will dress up and let pediatric patients toss Jell-O at them.

Children have different needs while hospitalized and child life specialists work to help meet those needs while keeping the children as comfortable as possible in what can be a scary environment.
